Video: J.R. Donato - "Don't Go Nowhere"

A.T.: 21-year-old Taylor Gang rapper J.R. Donato is seeing double in “Don’t Go Nowhere,” a drug-induced escapade where static weaves through his faded, Red-Light-certified haze. Produced by Sledgren, 808’s overflow amid the spaced-out instrumental as Donato’s tripped-out, charismatic flows fill out the track. Premiered by HotNewHipHop, “Don’t Go Nowhere” is the latest single from Donato’s Fast Money & Freedom EP, which released last Friday. With super sultry shots to trippy cuts, director J.A.T.H.A.N perfectly captures J.R.'s down-tempo vibe.

Audio: @ArmondWakeUp - "Jacqueline vs Angela" (@sohhPR)

Audio: Armond WakeUp - "Jacqueline vs Angela"

Josh: This is written from the perspective of "choices" resulting from conflict & "over-commitment". Sometimes conflict without immediate resolve gives us reason to make wrong choices. Sometimes we can be so invested in a relationship, we neglect our other responsibilities. Marcus understands that this is wrong; #1 he's never experienced this level of relational indulgence #2 he's seeing other priorities in his life begin to tail off. Yet, he's slow to "bounce back". This is a navigation through that process.

Audio: PJ Ghost - "Fifty Cents"

Dove: Quite simply, Coney Island's PJ Ghost is sick and tired of broke people just being broke, as displayed in his new track "Fifty Cents" produced by Keyz Kilo Hz. Take a listen, and also check out PJ Ghost's official video for "Lobby Dough" below.

Audio: @prhyme_official @Logic301 "Mode" (Beast Version) @RealDJPremier @AdrianYounge

Audio: PRhyme f/ Logic "Mode" (Beast Version)

Matt: Initially included as a scaled down version on the official movie soundtrack for Southpaw, PRhyme (Royce Da 5’9” & DJ Premier) unleash the full beast version of “Mode,” which also serves as the first preview from the forthcoming deluxe edition release of their debut self-titled collaborative project. “Mode” finds Royce and Logic going bar for bar for a 7-minute plus exercise of verbal pugilism.

PR: Red Pill Announces Day Drunk EP

MMG: Detroit’s Red Pill released his solo Mello Music debut album “Look What This World Did To Us” earlier this year. The record was striking because of it’s straight-forward, intellectually broken, Bukowski-like realism. The photos were serious, brooding, and the lyrics were heavy and genuine. Enter the Day Drunk EP.

Red Pill starts on top of a clock-ticking, mind-mesmerizing, introductory track from UK producer Paul White. After a philosopher-king monologue, the Zen Buddhist meditative chant begins – “Don’t work, just party - you’ll be alright. Don’t try so hard. Just live your life.” But Pill never leaves you insightfully dumb, with lines like “I think we need a new religion / wound up, bound up in submission / getting lost in the mission / false definitions/ be causing derision / all these people talkin’ competition / all these people talkin’ is division…” And then the record gets green lit.

You may recognize the next Alex Goose-produced track from Silicon Valley. Red Pill lays hardworking slacker ambition bare in one dumb, drunk, punch over the energetic beat. The song is as ludicrously lavish as Scorsese’s “Wolf Of Wall Street.” The album moves into happy-hour heartstrings unfurling with a song for those who’d rather stay inside, those who, “outside of their mind, don’t know what’s real.” This is for those who can never fall asleep without a helper, “a little gin and seltzer,” as Red Pill puts it. Blu joins the 3 o’clock session, laying bars over an Oddisee-produced, rainy kitchen window thought piece. But, like any good rap savior, Red Pill pulls us back up from the depths with Exile’s upbeat “Porn & Milk.” The Day Drunk EP is a record to wash away the feeling when your cash is gone.

Today, Red Pill is on some “love life” shit.
Bottoms up. Day Drunk begins now.
